Photography & Videography

Before the ceremony

Students may take a photo with their fellow graduates before the ceremony during line-up. Parents/guests will enter campus, and proceed to the Quad area, where they will be seated.


During the ceremony

We are asking family members/friends not to leave their seats during the Commencement Exercises. Professional photos are being taken by Island Photography. Guests are asked to stay in their seats during the processional, commencement ceremony and recessional out of respect for all members of the audience. This will be strictly enforced.

PLEASE NOTE:  The Individual student digital photos will be sent to each students WPI e-mail account in late May from Island Photography 

WPI records and streams live all the ceremonies from several vantage points. A complete, high-quality recording of each ceremony will be available for downloading within two weeks at

After the Ceremony

Students and parents/friends may wish to take photos at many of the traditional areas on campus, such as Earle Bridge, Higgins House, the Gompei Statue, and Boynton Hall. After the ceremony, please feel free to do so.
